I've been jamming my gift things into a small, dark closet. The items had overflowed from a drawer and needed more space. All those gift bags! They really accumulate after awhile! And I can't part with the Christmas bows from last year....
For several years now, I've been stuffing things in this closet and hating the disorganization of it. Oh, for the time to straighten it up! Poor me, I never have enough time for things like that. So I continued to dig for tissue paper and squished bows every time someone had a birthday.
Awhile back, I decided I would give myself 15 minutes to work on that closet.
I'm ashamed to say that in 15 minutes, I had my Gift Center looking pretty spiffy.
Now, I'm not gonna lie to you and tell you it still looks this good. Yesterday I opened the door to take stock of my supplies and was HORRIFIED to see that I'd regressed to a worse version of the "Before" photo. Hence, today's task.
Today's Small Thing is to straighten up your gift wrap area. You might have all your stuff out on a table (or in your bedroom) so that it's handy for wrapping the Christmas presents. That stuff gets so messy!! You could just straighten that up today. In just a few minutes it could look so good that you'll be calling it an official "Gift Center!"
